Another shining example of the need for the return of the pos bang. Well done.
We're about to lose the attendance record
Yes, but the RB's will also run wheel routes.
In all honesty this seems like a lame game to watch.
Wish I could see the future like you. You know the game is in 2016 right? Go check out Tennessee's recruiting class and tell me we're not on the way back.
If Michigan had thought of this you guys would be saying its the greatest idea ever.
And also there were about 103,000 in Neyland this weekend. Some of you uninformed posters just say things to say them whether they're true or not.
I think Butch Jones is a good coach, but way too early to predict how good Tennessee will be in 3 years. Butch Jones took over a bigger mess than Brady Hoke did, and we are still feeling the effects 3 years later even with top 5 recruiting classes the last 2 years. Butch Jones has Tennessee pointed in the right direction, but I have my doubts Tennessee will be a top 10 team 3 years from now.
And a bigger problem for Tennessee is that Florida, Georgia, and Alabama haven't dropped off at all. It may take time to get back at a level to compete with those programs.
As for the game at Bristol, I think it is a unique idea that may make for a cool one time experience. Most Michigan fans can relate to this after having a similar event with an outdoor hockey game played in Michigan Stadium. But I think the overall football experience is going to be worse than most fans realize. The sight lines are going to be terrible. Just one man's opinion. Are there even Jumbotrons at Bristol?
we never really had the record if crowd estimates from the early 20th centurty are accurate where several games, mostly involving the armed forces or Notre Dame or both, drew 120,000+ crowds.
Bristol is going to be awful as a football stadium.
Big deal . . . we'll still have the largest crowd in an actual football stadium. (But what is the deal with Tennessee and their obsession with surpassing us?)
I'll be hugely surprised if this is anything more than a rumor. It's been going around for at least twenty years. It always comes down to the fact that neither team is willing to give up a home game. If I had a dime for each time I heard this would happen I'd be able to retire wealthy. Don't believe it until contracts are signed. It comes up again every two years or so as absolute fact and never ever happens !!!!
1/4 mil 2020 chickens vs u of m. Michigan motor speedway. Folding chairs everywhere and hordes of people peeing standing up.
Wouldn't really bother me. It means more to say we have the biggest stadium. Everyone hears about that every Saturday. Largest football crowd ever is something you only hear about if you're a 4th grader and bought the Guinness Book of World Records through your monthly book order.
Are there no end to them in college football anymore?! Jesus. Christ.
behind the piles of money they only care about(some being distributed back to players).
Billy Ray Barnes who played in that 1961 NFL preseason game said, “The crowd was good, but it felt like a practice. The stands were so far away from the field it was hard to get into it. We couldn’t even hear the fans cheering until we were leaving the game.”
Shows how ridiculous the idea is. It looks like you could fit about four more football fields in around the football field. The nearest seats would be basically an entire football field away from the action!
they're having a race. The normal morbid desire to see a crash will be heightened by the possibility of seeing a spinning, out of control Jeff Gordon take out half of Tennessee's team in the infield.
Might make them a better team.
Tennessee is determined to get us back for the Woodson Heisman, even if it kills them. Or blinds their fans.
We'd have the *record still.
* - highest attendance for a game people actually cared about
Part of me is like awh, man. Then i console myself with the fact it's not in a football stadium. Put an asterisk on it.
Now it your time. Now is the time you say F**k it and blow the damn world away. It's time to truely conquer space. 350,000+ person stadium placed in orbit around the earth. Sure, things like "Gravity" might matter, but damnit man, you have engineers paying YOU!
So the new attendance record for a college football game, will be at a race track. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.
That still doesn't change the fact that we do and always will have the largest football stadium.
is reduce the seat size at the Big House in half, allow only really skinny people in (waist less than a 22) we could have easily 175,000. Plus the additional revenue generated in seat licenses and ticket sales would greatly help our financially strapped institution.
We are Michigan fergodsakes!!!!
